Getting ready for another Holiday season

We can feel it in the air... The Holiday season is coming...
In two weeks we will be selling our wrist wallets, arm wallets and ankle pouches at the Signature Show in Ottawa following by the One of a Kind Show in Toronto.
Lots of new styles to choose from - ones that are currently not for sale on our website.
We will bring new stylish PixiPak, MeliPak and PassPak (passport size one).
Soon we will draw tickets for these Shows so if you live in these regions, don't forget to sign-up to receive our newsletter to get your chance to participate in our draw.
Hope to see you soon,

New PixiPak - wrist wallet

Are you looking for a thin wrist band, wrist wallet or ankle wallet to carry the minimum when going grocery shopping or talking walks? Take a look at our newly improved PixiPak. Not only do they now come in seven different colors but they include a front padding to protect your essentials from water and shocks.

These bags are much thinner and a little smaller than our classic MeliPak. The idea came when customers were telling me that sometimes, they would only need a small bag to carry their ipod nano, a few cards and a key. The MeliPak is great to carry your cell/PDA/iPod or camera but it is not always needed.

I also got comments from people about having their kids wear them when going to their friends house or at summer camp. Some customers also use it for their permanent insulin pump!
Tell me where would you wear it?

New styles and colors

Just wanted to give you a sneak peak at our new colors.
I love colors but was mostly inspired by neutral tones for the next season...
And although many people are attracted to vibrant colors most of you tend to buy the black, gray and white - so you will have many styles to choose from.

Do you have a favorite?

Back from One of a Kind Show

Hi, It was our fifth time at the Toronto One of a Kind Show which is our favorite consumer Show of all!! Again, I had a very successful and enjoyable time meeting my loyal customers and new ones. My Mom was there to help me - thank God! We had so many people visiting our booth I don't know what I would have done without her...

Surprisingly many people had never seen my booth and bags before even though I've been to the OOAK many times... This time my kiosk was further in the front and at the beginning of the rows (F15) vs the last time (O43) which is at the complete opposite side. Maybe the Show is just so big that it is hard to see it all ;-)

Here some picture of my set-up

This time, not only did I showcase my big images, I also added my large logo including the five different ways to wear your bag. Basically, all Jupiter Freedom bags can be used as arm wallets, leg pouches, wrist wallets, waist bands or ankle cases.

As the Show, I've also tested a new hands-free bag to my collection: the PassPak. This stylish and versatile bag is used to store your passport under or over your clothes when traveling. If you don't want to use it for your passport, you can use it as a little pouch when walking around town. As long as you are hands-free! This new addition was a great success and will shortly be sold on my website

Hope you had as much fun as I did ;-)
Be hands-free,

The good, the fun and the ugly!

This is the time of the year for me that everything happens at the same time...

The GOOD: I've just finished updating my website with new hands-free bags. Since it is Jupiter Freedom's 3rd year anniversary, I've decided to treat my customers with a once-a-year sale. You will find new spring styles, my new PixiPak(tm) collection, new bag accessories and new ways to wear your bag. Since the elastic strap is adjustable and removable, use it like a wrist wallet, arm pocket, travel waist pouch, leg bag or ankle wallet! So versatile!

The FUN: I get to plan my Summer and Winter collections. I go through a ton of fabric by visiting multiple fabric stores in Montreal, New York and Baltimore. It could be intimidating seeing hundreds and hundreds of fabric rolls but I now know what to look for so my eyes browse pretty quickly. When something stands out I then look at the material quality and pattern. It is important to have a small pattern that would fit within the bag's dimensions. I have lots of new ideas for the next months so keep posted...

The UGLY: I hate doing it but I really have no choice... accounting... I'm not bad with numbers but it takes such a long time to enter all the receipts and balance everything out. Plus, since I do business in both Canada and the US, I have different currencies and taxes... Anyway, no sense complaining because it is inevitable ;-)

Be hands-free,
